Socal - San Bernardino County - Yucaipa NickNames: #WildwoodStatePark
Back in the day. This was for two wheeled trespassers only. Nowadys, it's a State Park. April-late May is ticks season here and there is some sparce poison oak. We intend to clear some out along the trails. This place is fun and can give you full day of riding if you try to do it all.
East on the 10 FWY to Yucaipa. Do not get off at Yucaipa. Go to the next exit called Live Oak Cnyn. Turn left over the fwy. Turn right at the light just passed the bridge (Calimesa Blvd). Go a mile or so to the first stop and turn left (Wildwood Cnyn. Rd.). Drive about 5 miles or so. It's up hill all the way until you dive into the canyon (Wildwood). Just past the first stop in the canyon (County Line Rd) is Wildwood Park. This is you staging area.
Now you're on your bikes. Ride east through the park until it turns in to dirt. 100 yards or so on your left, the other side of Wildwood Canyon road (North side), is a street that has some big oaks at the intersection. This is called Canyon Road. Cross Wildwood and ride north on Canyon Road past houses and side dirt roads. About a mile you will come to a pipe gate and the sign says Widwood State Park. Past the Gate the roads spilts. Left continues through the pasrk on a fire road and right starts you right away into some uphill singletrack. From this point there are several ride options. One I like is to continue on the left split for a mile or two. If you continue all the way, this road turns into Martell and dumps you out on Oak Glen Road about a couple of miles East of Bryant Street. There are several options along this road. The wide singletracks off to the right will take you on several loops through the park and put you over at the park entrance where you came in. However, instead of the singletrack, go a little further. There will be a Fire road interesction a little ways down the road. This is ambitious. If you look up at the peak that rises sharply and prominently above the Park (Pisgah Peak), you will notice a road that looks like only mountain goats go on. It's quite fun, steep, but fun. This road will take you back n a look to the south side of the park. From there there are several ways back to the entrance.
